First Birthday

Happy Monday! It's Thanksgiving week and I am sure you all are busy buying your turkey and prepping for your Thanksgiving dinner. Wishing you and your family a 
Happy Thanksgiving. Today I am sharing a birthday card I made for my niece 
who turns one today. 
I've had these zoo animal stickers forever. I was
going to use them in a photo album with zoo
pictures but never got around to it.  I think this
Giraffe is so cute and perfect for the card.  

The stickers have a shiny glitter texture to them.

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving!

1st Birthday

Happy Monday! My granddaughter Jade turn one this month. She is walking and exploring everything. Her and her sister Tessa are keeping us very busy. It's crazy how fast they grow. 

My Grandma was holding Jade on her
 lap reaching for the camera in this photo.
I added glitter CS and Tulle to make the skirt.

This was another card I made for Jade
for my daughter to use. 

Have a super great week!

Good Morning! Can you believe it's already Novebmer? My granddaughter Jade just turned One and Tessa will be Three. They grow so fast. How many of you still look at Pinterest for inspiration? I pin more than I make. (laughing) I saw this craft and thought it was too cute not to make with the girls. 
Tessa had so much fun putting paint on her feet.
Jade just wanted to touch it and put it in her mouth.

I made this candy bouquet for my daughter's

I used a floral foam, wooden skewers and hot
glue gun to put it together.  
 Enjoy the rest of your week! God Bless.

Happy Halloween! Are you ready for all the trick-or-treaters? I was lucky to have spent an afternoon with my neighbor Heather. She had the cutest Halloween cards for us to make. I really miss our crafting days together. It was so much fun. 

The circles are one large square die cut.
All the other items are from die cuts or punches.

Inside card

The backgroud paper was made using Tim Holtz
Oxide inks. You sponge ink on water color paper,
then spray it with water and watch the colors change. 

Can you see the light water sprays on the paper?

I wish you could see all the glitter on this card.
The candelabra is so cool. It looks as if its
real fire on the candles. 

Inside card
Have a fun Halloween and be safe.

Just Kidding

Happy Monday! Today I am sharing a card I made for one of my TOPS friends. According to her, she turned 39 again. (laughing) I thought this SU "Just Kidding" stamp set was perfect for her. I was trying to beat the mail man so the card was made very quick and simple. 
This is an older stamp set but it has
some cute sayings in it. 

Inside the card.

Happy 29th birthday to all my 110 lb. friends....hee hee Have a good day!
